    any ideas on how to solve 9b

    look at the layout of the text (in groups of 5)
    compare the text’s features with previous codes

    Is there any way to brute force it? As it is double coded, how do we know when we have solved the first step correctly? Or do we have to try every combination for the first AND second decrypt?
    I’d like to think there’s a better method.

    [Is there anything in the text that suggests something unusual? Harry]

    Have you already solved 8B?

    Does anyone want to offer some more support/ clues if they have done it ?

    Sometimes double coding adds up to a single cipher. I solved it as a single. Look at Harry’s tips, that should be enough.

    Harry is being clever and trying to cover up a transposition cipher you would not expect, I have no idea what the first one is but I might have an idea about the second one…

    I found this cipher cipher very intriguing, but all I can say is to read everything, and I mean everything Harry has given you in the tips because it will help you.
    The key is simple to bruteforce but that is not what you need to worry about.

    It’s also pretty obvious if you cracked the first encryption but read Harry’s words again

    For this early on, all I shall say if you are in despair is read the blocks and find an anomaly and analyse it to create the basis of decryption

    Transposition, with a twist. Loads of cribs.

    How does 9a help? Harrys tips offer nothing obvious to my eye

    Lots of good questions and some useful tips here. A few more that I will publish tomorrow morning! Keep going,

    Should the first block in 9b start with 4 letters? Usually it is in groups of 5 up until the last block.

    Well, the starting word chunk is only 4 letters long whereas the rest of the text is in 5 letters word chunk. But what’s that supposed to mean?
